Thank you for your interactive application. I on a daily basis prefer my diet to be barley water 750 ml & barley grains for breakfast & lunch. this has not only helped me in feeling light after a meal, but also helps me in reducing my food intake to desired levels. though a bit of salt is added, I have also decided to go on a salt free diet & if I need salt, then my preference would be Himalayan salt in desired quantity. I am a liver patient and know fully well in addition to medicines, duet plays a vital role. I am indeed happy that I have brought controls to my tongue & taste buds & therefore do not venture back into junk foods. quite difficult to attend social gatherings, but the only way out is avoid attending & believe me it is a tough day to control. once you are able to overcome, just see the difference.
